In the second trailer for the now-open Patriot’s Day, filmmakers have highlighted personal stories from some of the actors in the film and even some of the people actually involved juxtaposed with footage from the new film directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg.
This trailer really hit me. Of course you all know the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, but actually hearing the impact on real human lives makes the difficult subject material more accessible. Hearing how it further effected the performers and filmmakers adds to the movie’s impact.
I was sold on this film when I heard that Peter Berg was again working with Mark Wahlberg on another true tale of courage. After Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, these two can do anything and I’ll be stoked. Patriot’s Day seems primed to win over at least some voters come award season.
So what did you think? Have you seen Patriot’s Day and what did you think of it? Drop a comment below and let me know.
